NEWB: Obtaining Firmware Updates

Hi All,

OK, I've been trying to understand how I, a one-man business, can get a Firmware Update for an old router (c857) I purchased.

From what it appears, I need to take out a Service Contract with Cisco? Is this right? I don't want any hand holding, just the ability to download the file, but it looks like this is something Cisco have recently stopped doing?

Cheers,

Rich.

That is right. Cisco never allowed to donwload their software without a support contract.

What is the cheapest way

to get a service contract number for the purpose of having fully patched and secure equipment? Some of the cisco equipment I've bought online does not ship with current firmwares.
